    Any experience with this product?

    I was thinking about getting a jar (only 10 bucks on amazon) and seeing how it compared to my M&G #33 cream. Hard to say if how similar this is to the M&G product since there are no ingredients on the jar haha

    Anyways...any risk of damage to my burnished leathers?

    Cheers!

    @drcollie Hi! I just purchased a hancock and moore Motion Your Way sectional. The leather is the Lyric Ebony Protected from https://hancockandmoore.com/Products/Leather. First of all, how long do you think the Motion Your Way sectional will last? The end seats have recliners and the middle seats have Qualux seat cushions. So no springs and no 8 way hand tying I believe.


    Also, what products do you recommend I use to maintain my new leather sectional? Thank you!

    Here you go.

    You can get 40+ years out of it if you take care of it and ALWAYS close the recliner units before getting in and out of them. Seat cores will last 10 to 12 years under daily use. Your dealer can tell you how to get replacements when the time comes.

    @drcollie, I recently purchased a H&M sofa in Columbia Acorn, Class 1 protected leather.

    I was instructed to dust frequently with a dry cloth and wipe occasionally with a mild Ivory soap and water solution.

    Other sites I've read said Ivory tends to dry out the leather.

    What is your opinion / recommendation to clean - Ivory / water solution? Leather solutions Inc kit? Other?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does closing the recliner unit prolong the lifespan? I've had my seat for a good 10 years, still kicking ass without necesarly doing that

    If you stress the mechanism, the rivets will fatigue causing them to stretch and then fail. They are not repairable in spite of all the handymen who think they can. The only fix is a new mechanism. Some will last longer than others, it pays to not abuse them.
